From all over my flist:

Ask me my Top Five Whatevers. Fannish or literary or otherwise. Any top fives. Doesn't matter what, really! Fandoms, ice cream flavours, cartoon moments, women in my fandoms, OTPs, ideal holiday destinations, goals for the future, celebrity crushes, books I wish would be made into movies, love songs. And I will answer them all in a new post (or in comments). Possibly with pictures.


Remix duello signups are open! I offered up "Freaks and Geeks", which I've been dying for a remix of ever since I wrote it. So, EEE! did not include much of a "Dear Remixer" letter, because really, what would I say? I understand "Dear Yuletide Writer" letters, but "dear remixer" ones seem to stretch it more, and in this case, where the remixer is taking one specific fic, they seem really unnecessary. Of course, I could always be wrong.

In-laws are coming tonight. Pizza for all!

4.) "All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us." -Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring
5.) "Suddenly, a narcoleptic Argentinian fell through my roof. He was quickly joined by a dwarf dressed as a nun." -Moulin Rouge!

*snerk* I'm sorry, number three comes awfully close to one of my friends. She has two different middle names (Mahmoud and Maria) depending on whether you're talking to the Muslim or Catholic side, and she is dating a guy who her mom had a fit over because he looked too Jewish. And she's agnostic. xD

Also, so much agreement with #5

Top 5 tropes you've never written in fic but would love to use

From: [identity profile] lls-mutant.livejournal.com
Oooh- this one's hard.

1.) Forced/Arranged marriage. I'll bet I could have some angsty fun with that.
2.) HP-specific, but werewolves mate for life. I always wanted to have a story where Remus slept with some random guy and ended up magically bound to him, and then fell in love with Sirius later.
3.) Happiness in slavery. Well, to an extent. I admit, it's a total guilty pleasure.
4.) You Are Worth Hell
5.) Aliens Made them Do It (because it would sure save me a hell of a lot of set-up when I try to do a pairing like Kendra/Hoshi or Galen/Felix/Cally.)

Also, my all time favorite trope which I write as often as I can is "sharing a bed even though we're not lovers."

Heh. My Dear Remixer letter basically says, "Dear Remixer, I hope my story won't break your brain, have fun." ;)

Top five novels you've read over and over.

Remix Duello looks fun -- I offered A Symphony For Twelve, since this might be my best chance to get it remixed. Here's hoping for a good amount of BSG participation!

edit: oh, yeah, and my remix letter was basically "yes, I know the pairing is unpopular, but there's plenty of wiggle room in the story, so go for it!" :P

Happy meal toys from Avatar. The rhinosaurus things. In the middle of McDonald's, with an old couple sitting right behind us.

Fortunately, the guy was laughing so hard he had tears running down his face...
